This is the first time I’ve had a project published and I’m thrilled to see it professionally set out. Have been doing a happy dance all day.

It doesn’t have any stiffening and it is quite adjustable so it is comfy to wear (even if you’ve just enjoyed too much Lemon Meringue Pie). It doesn’t take too long to sew and it can be made from remnants – you could use some of those long strippy bits leftover from another project so it will match. I’ve used different fabrics for each of the strips here, but of course it could be all one fabric if you prefer.

The pattern can be found in Issue 6 of Sew Hip magazine. If you make one I’d love to see how it turned out, there is a Sew Hip Flickr group for you to share your pics of any projects you’ve made from the mag. 

Happy sewing!

  1. Tracy, you must be thrilled!

    One of you belts would really glam up a plain black skirt I’ve made! I’m off work for two weeks over the Easter break so I’ve got lots of time to try your pattern out.
